president obama has been indecisive unconflicted throughout much of his presidency and many victories can be credited to someone else. this is about an hour. >> host: rich, congratulations on your new, "leading from behind: the reluctant president & the advisors who decide for him." first, tell our viewers how and why he decided to write the book. >> guest: when i sat down and said it wanted to write a book without adjectives. i think there aren't a lot of anti-obama books out there. i didn't want to be either one of those books. i want to read a book to describe it as to what i thought was the most important question, the most interesting question anyway. let's look at barack obama a character. he is the guy that is very public thank you to the experience. his entire place is that the law professors like turn, the committee table in the illinois statehouse during various meetings, but he's never the guy in the front of the room deciding, making the hard calls. he is various little management experience, suddenly he's in the most managerial job in the world. president of the united states
that might otherwise miss on election day. so if you're barack obama and you are both an incumbent and a democrat, you like the fact that this year is going to be the high water mark so far for early, in-person voting. megyn: they're saying that half of the vote is expected to come in early in most of the battleground states. half of the vote will come in early in most of the states including north carolina, florida, colorado, nevada, ohio, iowa. i mean, that's, that's critical. so if you look at this national race right now, tied up in so many of these polls, but then you get a different result, usually president obama winning when you look at the state-by-state analysis in ohio and florida and virginia and pennsylvania, you can't be happy about that if you're mitt romney, can you? >> no. and this is why democrats -- this is why incumbents and especially democrats have pushed for these early voting, that they really want it because it cuts into the time for mitt romney, in this case, to challenge the democratic incumbent, to come in and try to knock him down a peg. this is really
're looking for a little more intention from president obama, you know what you have to do, beat ohio. he's got campaign events in bowling green state university and kent state university today marking his 29th visit to ohio since taking office. if you exclude the d.c. suburbs of virginia and maryland, it is more than any other state besides new york where the president likes to go to fund raise and considerably more than any other swing state. according to "the washington post," either the president or vice president biden pops up in ohio every three weeks and usually with good financial news for the state. in march ohio got a federal grant for new manufacturing center, it was the first awarded and the administration awarded ohio about $125 million in tax credits to promote clean energy. officials say sometimes good policies also end up being good politics. mitt romney also in ohio wrapping up the three-day romney/ryan bus tour there. while "the new york times" reports that the two plan to campaign more together and they

when president obama and governor romney go head to head a little more than 48 hours from right now. welcome to "america live," everyone, i'm megyn kelly. a new survey of likely voters finds that almost one in five say that they can still be swayed to vote for either candidate here. and some of those wavering voters say they are waiting for these debates to help them decide. the headline here according to bloomberg, about 18% of the electorate is, quote, persuadable, and that is a big number considering that early voting has already begun. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital politics editor and host of "power play" on foxnews.com. so the campaigns have got to see that, in particular the romney camp, as good news, chris, since he is shown as trail anything a lot of these swing state polls as well. >> well, certainly it's not good news if you're president obama. if that's true, if you really have 18% persuadable voters, this comes after fife months -- five months of the most stained, negative attack, most personal barrage against a candidate by an incumbent president that we've ev

first caller. caller: good morning. obama and biden are cutting the military and they don't even say much about it on the news. things will be cut, especially in the navy. there are many people in afghanistan and they will go out with no retirement. as far as romney, i'm not happy with him either. host: our next call is kevin on the line from the democrats. caller: my view on paul ryan is that his health-care plan, the vouchers, it allows an increase based on inflation. in the last 10 years the cost of health care has gone up 11% per year. so it would be up to the individual voucher holder to pay the difference. this has had a tremendous impact on the votes of older people. recent polls show older people are leaving the republican party because of the direct impact of paul ryan as being chosen as vice president. host: let's hear from john in pennsylvania on the independent line. good morning. will the vice-presidential candidates impact your vote? are you there? let's try missoni in fort worth, texas. -- tony in fort worth, on the democratic line. caller: yes, i think it will impact

media. and you add those three elements together and to get the obama hate machine. so i would just like to see a little about each of those elements and then open it up for questions until the cameras are turned off. and let's start with a hate directed against obama. first, i've got to say i think criticism of any african president is fair game. i'm part of the white house press corps. i go to the white house every day. i would've been there today if i were coming down here, and everyday in front of the white house, pennsylvania avenue, there's a crowd of people protesting something. and i love the. i always make a point of checking out what they're for come with the issue of the day is. it's a very healthy part of our democracy. and criticism of the president of courses been around for a long time. if you want to go back to the ugliest presidential campaign history you can't go back to 1800 john adams and thomas jefferson, the things that were said particularly by their followers. but with president obama, it's been -- attacks not on his policy so much as on him as a person. we haven'
sebelius machine for the boss reelection? she encouraged the audience the giants to continue obama should be president. it does day the boys cannot use their official jobs to defect the election and. the white house said it was mistaken to reimburse for travel executives. but people want her fired. political appointees do this all the time. kathleen sebelius is a hard core herb big government democrat. of course, she supports obama. is that illegal? the "wall street journal" reports the biggest union givers is the air-traffic controllers. why? they start to give more money after obama gave him a contract with pay increases. more than other government workers. it is a coincidence i'm sure. they say they support the president because the administration and strong commitment to their safety. mitt romney must not the. bribery? it seems wrong unions paid to elect politicians who pay them back with your money. why isn't that a scammed? it is legal. crazy. legal. at that union demonstration that union built the middle-class. they gave the workers the eight-hour day, at time off, higher pay. >> d

definitely helping the stock market. whatever you think of president obama and politicians currently in washington it is helping wealthiest individuals right now what they're doing i guess. i wonder, does this, is it really feeling more confident though, or is it just, this is the new normal and sort of investors are saying it is not going to get that much better from here. so i have to find a way to try to make some money somewhere where i have to be pushed out into riskier assets to try to make money? >> personally i really don't like that phrase, the new normal. history has shown that the stock market, the, you know, the economy, it all runs in cycles. so we're just in a particular cycle right now. but, i think to a certain degree people do feel better than they did a few years ago when things were much worse. obviously yeah, there is still a lot hanging over us in terms of, you know, the debt ceiling, high unemployment, what is going on in europe, so, you know, i would like to say that people are probably, if anything, more cautiously optimistic. melissa: yeah. why are they feeli

this economy is enacting extreme austerity, and this debate is relevant whether it's obama or romney. is austerity actually denting growth, is it creating more problems than it solves. let me give you one example. we have a sales tax in this country that has been raised from 16% to 18% to 21%. that has created a slight inflation issue. now, pensions are inflation linked. and this country in november has to increase pension abouts by inflation. so by raising 2.5 billion euro v.a.t., it will cost them 3.5 billion euro misincreased pension costs. so you can see the conundrum. they're enacting enormous amounts of austerity, but that's denting an economy which is already in recession. its second since 2008. and things are getting worse. 25% unemployment, a million up sold homes. and we haven't even talked about the banking crisis and the autonomous region, some of which including catalonia are looking trying to get some form of assembly. it is a toxic mix. >> imagine that there will be pressure on markets as this they think unfolds. we're also counting down to the wire here of course in t

the obama administration is circulating a draft executive order, that would shield vital computer networks from cyber attacks. the attack escalated last week, flooding bank websites with traffic, making them unavailable to customers. a u.s. official says the attack waged by a still-unidentified group outside the country. republican presidential nominee mitt romney takes his campaign to pennsylvania. he attended a rally at valley forge military academy and college. meantime, it appears romney's campain is trying to lower expectations as he heads into his first debate against president obama. romney will debate the president in denver on wednesday. romney's campaign adviser released a memo that outlines why president obama should win the debate, including the president has a lot more experience and is a great public speaker. a so-called "super pac" that supports president obama gets a major boost. george soros will donate one million dollars to "priorities usa action." the former hedge fund manager will also give 500,000 dollars to 2 super pacs that back congressional democrats. so far this
, that is the foundation for balancing our budget. it is way too easy to demagogue this. i have listened to obama and romney who have both demagogued and misrepresented the facts. i do not regard people getting government benefits as moochers. if we do not address it, it will not be long before we are greece. >> the government has to honor its commitments. we need to honor commitments we made our seniors, and that is why i say, let me be clear, no one over the age of 40 should see their benefits cut or their taxes increase. promises were made by government and promises need to be kept. we need to make sure that all happens, and i believe there is bipartisan support to do that. nobody is going to watch social security fail. >> the promises were made to secure the votes of people over 65. since world war ii we have been doing it. it is a $60 trillion unfunded liability, and are we going to solve the problem? will we ignore it? and if we ignore it, god help the united states of america. >> recently at the national convention, republicans called for a constitutional amendment banning all abortions wi

they want macaroni and cheese. i don't know mrs. obama well left and say if she is -- she was surprisingly kind of reserved and quiet and tumble. ito laura bush a good deal better. the which travel to the middle east -- we traveled to the middle east. at laura bush is exactly what you think she is. she is lightly guarded but she has a sense of humor. i am not sure that that is something that people know. humor is very tricky because it is found in a reverence and as a first lady, you have to watch yourself carefully. but she is very funny and i will tell you a quick anecdote. we were looking at family pictures, and there are almost no indicators that a former president of the united states lived in this house. it is not like here is president bush in his flight suit. there is one picture, the what of all the president's in the office. i said to her, and you miss the white house? gigots -- she goes -- are you kidding me? >> for me, having not just about first ladies, but they all have potential first ladies. the stories that always tend to stick with me had to be that it is much harder for

why yous pushed for her boss' reelection. she encouraged to make sure obama continues to be president. bun dits said she should be fired because the law does say government employees may not use their official jobs to try to effect an election. the white house said it was a mistake and reimbursed the government for travel expenses she won't be punished. but some conservatives were furious still are they want her fired. come on. political employees do this all of the time. kathleen seb beal why yoll why hard-core democrat of course she promotes obama. that's illegal? what galls me is what's legal. wall street journal says the newcomer to the newcomers is air traffic controller. why? oh it turns out they started giving out more money after president obama gave him a contract with rich pay increases more than what government workers got. i am sure that is just a coincidence. his administration strong commitment to air safety. mitt romney is not committed to air safety. why isn't this illegal? bribery, just seems wrong. unions pay to elect politicians who pay them back with your money. wh
